Remember Me?

Hi, everyone - it's me, Tanner!  You might not even REMEMBER me - because it's been a REALLY long time since I've blogged!  

I could pretend that the reason you haven't seen me around very much lately is because the other kids are crowding me out and taking my blog turns, but the truth is that I've been busy.  Because, as you may (or may not) know, I have a very important job that often keeps me from blogging as much as I might like. 

I am - a WATCH CAT!  This is a self-appointed duty that I took on when I was just a wee kitten, and I have continued it to this day.  I have numerous windows from which I keep watch, and recently I have been quite busy at this, as, for the first time in a long while, we have neighbors to our left. They have a big grey dog that Mom calls a Weimaraner, and a cat that likes to hang out on their back porch. The dog doesn't bother me, but I don't like the cat very much.  I am ok with it if he just stays where he is, but he'd better not try to come in OUR yard.  So far he has not tried to scale the fence and encroach upon OUR property, but if he does, you can be sure that I will be ready for him.  

Meanwhile, I spend a lot of my time these days in the mudroom window - ON WATCH!

Mom is nice enough to serve my meals there, and sometimes I even take a break to let her take my picture.  


So I guess that's about it - I am a cat on a mission, with  not much time for blogging these days, but I do send my best to all our friends in the Blogosphere ... and most especially the lady cats.  

P.S. Tucker wanted me to remind everyone that if you haven't entered our Orijen giveaway, sponsored by MrChewy.com - you can do so HERE. A random winner will be drawn March 31st and announced here on the blog.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Of course we remember you, silly Tanner. Do you see lots of Bird TV out those windows? We hear kitties like to do that. Maybe one day that new neighbor kitty will be your friend.

Hey Tanner,

It's great to hear from you - I can see why you haven't been in touch, that looks like a very responsible and time consuming job you have buddy!!

Hope you're having fun,

Snoops :)

Well hi Tanner. Austin says the duties of a watch cat are very onerous, so we are grateful you can spare the time. lol x

Tanner, it's very important to keep an eye on those strangers living next door. I see the cats next door to us all the time and I don't like them either--and none of us even go out!

Cats just have very big territories is all.

Tanner! You is a ManCat after my own heart! I sometimes race from living room to dining room to bedroom to keep sufficient watch on what the heck is going on out on our street! For a little street, we has lotz of 'citement! I need for my Human to start bringing me my fudz at the window too.

What a handsome kitty! You know I love the tabbies. :) We have a self-appointed watch cat as well! Unfortunately, Freddie is a little slow, and he prefers to spend his time looking into the alley (where nothing ever happens) rather than out the front window. :)

Hi Tanner, it's my first time meeting you and I must say you are very lovely. It's obvious that you are a VIC (very important cat) on the patrol of the property. I understand you being so busy. One of my little shih tzus (Meeka) has taken on the job of patrol dog as well. I understand the stress you are under. Take care pretty one!

Hi Tanner, there are 3 beautiful lady cats here who think you are so handsome! We have jobs too! Oui Oui is official paper shredder and box inspector. That keeps her busy too.
